Doodling: Elephants & Patterns
If you follow this blog, you may know my love for illustration. I sooo wish I could draw. I can't even doodle! It's true. I traced this elephant outline and then tried to fill it in with patterns. That's been my thing lately - try to learn patterns. But my elephant looks sickly.
There are some good moments happening - I like the ears. And that one leg with triangles. And the loops on his back. But that's about it. And those aren't even awesome. I thought maybe filling it in with color would help.
Ehh....Now I really like the scales on his head. And his trunk is okay. And I the colors solidify my love for the triangle. But man - the other areas are awful. I do like this color palette, though...
Help! Do you have any resources that could bump my drawing skills up to the level of a fifth grader?
If anyone labels this, "Craft Fail" and puts it on Pinterest, I will hunt you down.
JK, you guys! Feel free to pin my fail. :)
